Outstanding electronic music
Without wandering into the mire of genre-labels, this record is unusual and entertaining. This guy seems to have an expansive knowledge of music and great technical expertise, in addition to being especially prolific. This was the first record in his collection of many that I've listened to, and I'm already downloading a couple more. My credentials as a critic are simple - I listen to a LOT of electronic stuff on archive.org (I post some too), and this record really stands out as a great piece of work. Very complex, highly produced, suprising and funny at times. I give it four starts only because I want to see how this one stacks up to other records in his collection (may need to save the fives for other reviews). Thanks Chenard - this one goes into my permanent collection.
